Lost Morning On The Chattahoochee River

Lazy Morning On The Chattahoochee River

My years dealing with rolls of film were long past by the time the camera bug truly bit me, but it’s still a part of my youth. And misplacing film was practically a way of life for me. Heck, my baby pictures were on a roll of film lost for years thanks to an absent minded uncle! So, I think that shows that lost film and my life are genuinely hand in hand. That’s been the one lost pleasures of digital photography. Sure, flash cards might go bad or hard … Continue reading

Abstract Photography – What’s in A Name?

Abstract Photography - An Elevator captured in motion and repeating lines

Perhaps abstract photography is too abstract to get much notice online? It’s been a slow but beneficial journey for me, learning how important the words that accompany art are online. Our search engines are smart, but they don’t yet know with any precision what’s in a picture or whether it’s the one you’re looking for just based on your search request. Maybe you’d like to help me describing a piece of abstract photography? Background Over the course of  many months, I started working to improve the descriptions that accompany my … Continue reading

Serendipity in Photography – Being There Versus Going There

Picture of a church tower in Oaxaca Mexico with birds in flight

This is a topic that’s been rolling around in my head for awhile now, particularly whenever I plan a new trip (and no, nothing planned now). Each time I hatch a journey, I know there’s likely a photographer or artist who lives at my destination, knows the area well, and most importantly is there day by day. If I capture a beautiful moment in the spring, they’ll still be there in the fall long after I’ve left. This is particularly true of any large western city. Travel photography is part … Continue reading

See My Prints – Have a Meal!

Wide angle picture of Atlanta's High Museum on Peachtree Street

File this post under should have announced this ages ago, but I guess better late than never right? Earlier this year, a new Jack’s New Yorker Deli opened up in the Atlanta neighborhood of Buckhead. Why would this be of interest to people reading my art blog you may be wondering? Well, that Buckhead location has decorated their restaurant with what I’m sure must be the largest collection of my Atlanta prints on public display! I kept thinking surely at some point I’d get up in that direction and see … Continue reading

A Drive Down Memory Lane: The Guide to Historic Architecture and Sites in Montezuma

After deciding to leave Atlanta in mid 2009, I returned home to Montezuma, Georgia. While I wasn’t born here, I was young enough when I came here that I don’t remember any other place I’d call home. I had often taken photos here when visiting on the odd weekend, but it was the first chance I’d had since becoming enchanted by photography to really take the time to explore Montezuma with my camera. As it turned out, this time to explore had the unlikely fortune to coincide with a project … Continue reading

Fall in North Georgia

Photo of an old shed in North Georgia in the Autumn

Fall is just my favorite season. Spring is a close second, but autumn has the cool temps and the bright colors, especially in the north part of the state where I lived for a decade. In fact, even though the Alpharetta area where I lived wasn’t really in the mountains or anything, it was far enough up to have some great color. This is a picture of a scene I used to pass everyday on the way to work. This old farm shed had seen better days but it was … Continue reading
